The interaction of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and US President Donald Trump with the young performers at the Howdy Modi event turned out to be a golden opportunity for a boy to click a selfie with the two world leaders
In a video shared by the office of Prime Minister, the two leaders are seen walking together when they stop for a brief interaction with some young performers who participated in the event. A young boy then requests for a selfie, and both the leaders obliged him and posed for the picture.
The video was shared by the office in the morning and received more than 18,000 likes in less than two hours and was flooded with retweets. While some people adored the innocence of the kid, others regarded this picture as the most powerful selfie of the world.
Here are some of the reactions -

PM Modi and Donald Trump greeted each other and walked the red carpet to the stage at the NRG Stadium. Both the leaders were welcomed onto the stage and the National Anthems of both India and the US were played. This was the first time that both the leaders were sharing a stage together. Prime Minister Narendra Modi had arrived at the stage of the most-awaited 'Howdy, Modi' event exactly 21:40 IST as Houston's Mayor Sylvester Turner and the US lawmakers welcomed him. Amid loud cheers and chants of 'Modi, Modi', the Prime Minister waved at the humongous 50,000 crowds gathered at the NRG Stadium.
